CCMG Nephrology and Complex Medicine clinic expands, updates practice

Nurse Practitioners Anne Jones and Amy Hawk have cared for patients at Campbell County Health throughout their whole careers. They both worked as nurses on the Campbell County Memorial Hospital Medical Surgical (Med/Surg) unit before completing their doctorates in Nursing Practice from the University of Wyoming. They were able to complete the three year program by commuting between Gillette and Laramie, with most of their clinical rotations taking place here at CCMH.

After spending years together working in Med/Surg and during their education, the pair are excited to be providing care at Campbell County Medical Group (CCMG) Nephrology and Complex Medicine, along with Dr. Robert Neuwirth, an internal medicine doctor and kidney specialist.

Anne describes Dr. Neuwirth as a huge advocate for the skills of nurse practitioners. He was a mentor for both women while they were completing their degrees, having worked closely with them in his role as a hospitalist.

Now that Amy and Anne are part of CCMG Nephrology and Complex Medicine, the clinic is accepting new adult patients for internal medicine care. Their goal is to see patients within a day of their initial call. The clinic is based on a medical home model, which seeks to meet many different healthcare needs for their patients, from acute illness to routine immunizations. Amy, Anne and Dr. Neuwirth will work as a team, collaborating on each patient’s plan of care.

Amy emphasizes the importance of building relationships with patients, getting to know them and their stories by listening and spending time.

Amy’s husband Ray is an oil and gas engineer and they have four children, with two still living at home. When she is not busy working and caring for her family, Amy enjoys hunting and fishing.

Anne’s husband Blake is an engineering manager for a local mining company and they have two young children. When she’s not spending time with her family, Anne is an avid runner.

The team is now accepting new adult patients who are looking for a comprehensive approach to primary care called the medical home model, which means they collaborate as a team to help the patient make informed decisions about their health.
